New Toddler Taming

New Toddler Taming

A parents’ guide to the first four years

Summary

Many parents wonder how the sweet, chubby baby which gurgles happily at them for the first twelve months changes so suddenly into a bellowing, tantrum prone, heel drumming, carpet biting toddler. What's gone wrong? Whose fault is it? What can be done about it?

Dr Christopher Green's classic bestselling parenting guide has been revised and updated to answer these questions and others like them in a way that parents of the twenty-first century will instantly grasp. Dr Christopher Green quickly calms fear of 'abnormal' bad behaviour, points out the inevitable strains of bringing up children and offers invaluable practical advice on all fronts from sleep problems and tantrums to potty training. This new edition also includes updated information on childhood eating habits, sibling rivalry and discipline.

Light-hearted and authoritative, New Toddler Taming is a must for family sanity!
